CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS


Manufacturers' Shipments,

Inventories, and Orders


July 1985
M3-1(85)-7
For Wire Transmission 10:00a.m. E.D.T. Friday, August 30


",..: (AlFj4rfes in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars)


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in July
decreased $2.6 billion or 1.3 percent to $195.6 billion,
following a 1.7 percent increase in June and a 2.1 percent
increase in May. A decline in defense orders accounted for
about half of the decrease; excluding defense,
manufacturers' new orders were down 0.6 percent.

Shipments of manufactured goods for July were $193.8
billion, showing virtually no change since March, when they
reached $194.3 billion. Both the durable and nondurable
goods sectors reflected the flatness. Durable goods
shipments were $102.5 billion in July with an average of
$102.4 billion per month since March; nondurable goods were
$91.3 billion in July, with an average of $91.5 billion per
month since March.

Manufacturers' unfilled orders in July increased $1.9
billion or 0.5 percent to $361.4 billion, following a 1.2
percent increase in June. Defense capital goods contributed
significantly to both months' increases; excluding defense,
unfilled orders in June increased 0.2 percent and in July
decreased 0.4 percent.

Manufacturers' inventories in July decreased $0.5
billion or 0.2 percent to $285.2 billion, nearly offsetting
the 0.3 percent increase in the prior month. Inventories
have shown virtually no change since last October when tl.ey
reached $285.6 billion, following a year of steady
increases. The inventory to shipments ratio for July was
1.47, the same as June.

NEW ORDERS. New orders for durable goods in July were down
$2.4 billion or 2.3 percent to $104.4 billion. About two-
thirds of that decline came in transportation equipment,
which declined $1.6 billion or 5.6 percent to $26.7 billion;
aircraft and parts decreased $1.2 billion following a $2.6
billion increase in June. Both electrical and nonelectrical
machinery were down, offsetting most of the increases shown
last month; nonelectrical was down $0.2 billion or 1.2
percent in July to $17.6 billion, following a 2.8 percent
increase in June; electrical was down in July $1.2 billion
or 7.7 percent to $15.0 billion, following an 8.4 percent
increase in June. Primary metals were also down in July,
declining $0.2 billion or 1.5 percent to $10.6 billion. New
orders for the nondurable goods sector showed a slight
decline, down $0.2 billion or 0.2 percent to $91.3 billion.


SHIPMENTS. The small decline in durable goods shipments of
0.2 percent resulted from offsetting increases and decreases
in the major industries. The largest increase was in
transportation equipment, up $0.7 billion or 2.7 percent to
$25.0 billion, with most of the increase in the automotive
industry. Fabricated metals products were up $0.5 billion
or 4.0 percent to $14.4 billion. The largest declines were
in the machinery categories; electrical was down $0.7
billion or 4.4 percent to $15.0 billion, and nonelectrical
was down $0.7 billion or 3.6 percent to $17.3 billion.

Within nondurable goods, increases in food products,
chemicals and textiles offset declines in tobacco products,
apparel and petroleum. The food products industry shipments
were $24.7 billion in July and account for about one-fourth
of all nondurable goods shipments; foods have shown little
change since the end of 1983, averaging $24.7 billion per
month.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The unfilled orders increase of $1.9
billion was caused mostly by an increase in defense aircraft
and parts. Small increases in nonelectrical machinery,
shipbuilding, steel, and instruments were offset by small
decreases in the rest of the industries.

Within the capital goods industries, unfilled orders
for nondefense declined $0.3 billion or 0.2 percent to
$132.3 billion; a post recession high was reached in
September 1984 at $137.1 billion, with declines occurring 8
of the 10 months since then. Defense unfilled orders
continued to increase; the July increase was $2.8 billion or
2.0 percent to $140.8 billion. Defense backlog now accounts
for 40 percent of the total backlog held by durable goods
manufacturers.

INVENTORIES. Inventories in the durable goods industries
showed virtually no change for the month with most of the
industries showing increases of 1.0 percent or less.
Inventories of defense capital goods manufacturers increased
$0.6 billion or 2.2 percent to $25.3 billion; excluding
defense, durable goods inventories declined 0.4 percent.

Nondurable goods inventories declined $0.7 billion or
0.7 percent to $92.8 billion, the largest declines being in
petroleum products, chemicals and paper products.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for August is scheduled for release on September 24,
1985 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on October 2, 1985 at
10:00 A.M.
